A Year on the Tump

Daniel Thomas (Author)


. . . turn onto Chincoteague Road. . . just past the rockets at the NASA Visitor Center, open the car windows. The road bends to the right and a massive horizon opens up. Breathe in the smell of the marsh. Get ready to be home - for the first time, or forever.

"A Year on the Tump" unveils the seasons of life on Chincoteague Island - the wonder of its natural surroundings, its hearty down-to-earth people, and life in a small community. Told with artistic imagery and humor, where the sights and sounds of the front porch are more intriguing than television or the internet, Daniel Thomas takes the reader to a place where everyone knows your name, or at least your business.

For newcomers, here is an introduction to a magical place surrounded by water and sky. For Teaguers, Come'ere's and Been-heres who think they know the Tump well, you might just reconnect with all that makes the Island HOME.
